This train the trainer programme has been designed to meet the needs of parents and families as they face up to the daily challenges of family life.

Whether that’s ‘what was normal’ in pre-pandemic times or to support parents and families with the added strains of working from home and home schooling in our ‘new normal’.

The programme has been tried and tested for over 10 years and has been run in large corporate organisations such as Citigroup, Belron plc, Morgan Stanley, Cooper Parry, Boots, in SMEs, to the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, in local authority Housing Associations, in the NHS, in schools and to public groups – always to resounding success.
